Offered at South University, Online Programs

Program Description

The Post-graduate Certificate in Nursing program with a specialization in Nurse Educator is comprised of courses in teaching and learning strategies, curriculum development, evaluation, and two practicum courses. Under the guidance of an approved preceptor, the practicum courses provide an opportunity for the student to enact the role of the nurse educator in clinical and academic settings.

Post-master's students must successfully complete graduate didactic and clinical requirements of the master's specialization and are expected to master the same outcome competencies as master's students pursuing the specialization in Nurse Educator, including the master's core competencies and the specialization competencies.

Courses may be waived if the individual's master's transcript indicates that s/he has successfully completed the required course or its equivalent. Waivers and exceptions will be determined for individual students through a gap analysis as determined by the Program Director or College Dean.
